Gluten free fish and chip batter mix
After sweets, the thing my husband misses most now that he's eating gluten free is battered foods, especially... fish and chips!
Gluten free fish and chip batter mix (coats 8 pieces of fish)
3/4 cup rice flour
1/2 cup corn starch
1/2 cup corn flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
What else you'll need
1 cup water
1 tablespoon vinegar
Combine mix with water and vinegar and stir, then place in the fridge to chill for up to 1/2 hour. I like to shake my dry ingredients in a jar to mix them evenly.
Dip pieces of fish in batter to coat evenly, then fry in oil on medium to medium high heat, flipping to cook both sides.
Once fish is golden brown on both sides, place on a paper towel to drain excess oil.
I served ours with lemon wedges and homemade sweet potato fries.
It didn't taste exactly like 'real' fish and chips, but it was very good. The batter tasted somewhat like Fritos because of the corn components, which was very yummy! I'll be making Frito fish again very soon!
